WASHINGTON – Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-NY) released the following statement today after the House voted to raise the debt ceiling.

“The economy could not have tolerated another self-inflicted wound. A clean debt ceiling bill is what was needed, and I’m pleased that the majority allowed it to move forward.  The world should never have to wonder if America is going to make good on its financial obligations. Advancing this legislation will provide certainty to the markets and assist in restoring what credibility was lost as a result of past debt ceiling fights.”
